High functionality, few compromises

The NH500 Escape 32 L black backpack is characterized by its high functionality. There is a pocket or compartment for everything, often accessible from the outside and with a zipper, without sacrificing overall storage space. I particularly like the fact that the large compartments can be fully opened. This makes storage easy. Of course, you have to be careful that this doesn't happen on the way because the zippers weren't closed. The zippers are very smooth. They are relatively thin, so durability cannot be said. You have to be a little careful not to wind it under stress. But there is a 10 year guarantee. The storage option for the lap belt is great. Minor drawbacks include: missing Velcro fastener for the laptop compartment. This could fall out if the compartment opens unexpectedly. The cell phone compartment on the carrying strap is too small for currently large cell phones. The carrying straps need to be tightened occasionally because they lengthen (probably not under load). It would be nice if the backpack, which stands well when fully packed, retained its shape even when empty. So when it's empty it looks a bit shabby. But overall a great deal for the price.

All-rounder backpack

Excellent backpack, well made and very roomy thanks to the regular shape. Thanks to the good padding it can also be used for transporting photographic material. It is not strictly a trekking backpack, however the good padding of the shoulder straps, the waist and chest straps also make it suitable for short walks.

We have reduced our environmental impact on this product

We have improved this product with an eco-design approach.Our commitment to consume less water with this product and to reduce our impact on the environment: we choose the method of dyeing in the mass, integrating the colour pigments from the manufacture of the yarn (product references: black 8649351, khaki 8649348).


The components of the bag are water-repellent so that you can temporarily continue walking/hiking in light rain. Caution: this backpack is not watertight/waterproof and it does not have a rain cover. If you want to continue walking/hiking in the rain and protect your belongings, we recommend the following model: ”20 to 40 L rain cover”, which can be viewed on our website, item reference 8734213.

How is volume measured?

The volume of each backpack is measured using a standard method: we fill the main compartment, as well as each pocket, with little balls. Then we empty these balls into a graduated container, which gives the equivalent volume in litres.The capacity of the main volume of this bag is 32L. We also measured the volume with the 2 exterior side water bottle pockets, whereby its total capacity increases to 35L.

Tested for optimum durability and strength

To guarantee the durability of the bag, laboratory tests are conducted on the components and assemblies to replicate the ageing of the backpack.For example, for a fabric, we test the resistance to abrasion and tearing, the colour fastness when exposed to UV light and washing, and the waterproofing. We use these tests to guarantee the bags for a period of 10 years from the date of purchase on the receipt.

How to adjust your backpack?

1 - Loosen all the straps, shoulder straps, waist belt and chest belt2 - Put the bag on3 - Buckle the chest strap and adjust its height and width4 - Tighten the shoulder straps (from top to bottom)5 - Buckle and adjust the waist belt6 - Adjust it to your likingIt's all good!

How to fill your backpack?

Place the heavy items, e.g. laptop, picnic, etc., in the bottom and in the spaces provided. Pack your clothes around these items. Put the small belongings that you will use during the day (sun cream, map, sunglasses, etc.) in the pockets. Put the water bottle(s) in the outer pockets on the sides that are made for this purpose.

Product testing

It’s in France, at the foot of Mont Blanc, that our design team conceives, designs and creates Quechua products. We test them in the field with other hikers to make sure that they are comfortable and durable. This backpack has been tested and improved by hikers in different climatic conditions and different environments.
